Huge disappointment

29/11/2016 Elise H,

I guess we were spoiled by the Best Western Santa Barbara....it started when we checked in and found out that there is a $15 per day parking fee. There is NO street parking, and if it's a weekday and... more

Elise H. Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay at our hotel. I see that you posted your review two separate times. I am not sure if you did not see that it was posted under your other login or if there is some technical issue. We have notified TripAdvisor of this. Regardless I am truly sorry that you had a less than perfect stay at our hotel. We take pride given the opportunity during any guest stay to do all that we can to make it outstanding. As you can see by out rating summary here on TripAdvisor as well as many other ratings sites that we take customer satisfaction very seriously as well as our 4.5 rating in housekeeping alone. I am truly sorry that we did not meet your expectations and would like an opportunity to try again should your travels take you to our area again. Also I would like to address the parking comments as I see you are an extensive traveler by the number of hotel reviews you have posted and would assume that you have stayed in a downtown property prior to your stay with us. As I know it parking in downtown locations is limited or non-existent and requires us as well as other hotels and business to maintain a parking structure not only in Long Beach downtown but throughout the world in downtown locations. In most cases the parking is operated by a third party and is required by business permits to keep separate the parking fees. If we had bundled them as you suggested you would have also had to pay additional hospitality tax on top of the nominal parking fee. I hope that this makes sense and that is not about “gouging” our customers. Our content team has made sure that everywhere you can book our hotel that all of the additional charges including parking are spelled out in your booking agreement. Again thank you for your comments and please reach out to me personally should you like to give us another opportunity in a future stay. Regards, Shawn Jones General Manager

The best, Best Western so far.

We were expecting your average Best Western & a bit nervous about the location. Our worries were wrong on both counts. The facility is new, quite spacious, and the pool is large, indoor & heated. O... more

There is a reason it's so cheap - bring earplugs, Clorox wipes, and bug spray.

22/11/2016 Nils M,

Disappointing experience overall. This is a decent building, fairly clean and comfortable overall, and the price and proximity to the convention center is good, but it is poorly managed, as evidenced ... more

Nils M, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and our operation. After my initial apology I feel it necessary to assure you that we do take our customer satisfaction very seriously. We are not in the top 10 hotels in Long Beach by avoiding negative customer feedback. I can understand that our service team should have done a better job in initiating that late evening call to you. It rightfully should have been handled earlier in the day when you chose to extend your stay after your initial prepaid reservation expired. Again I truly apologize for that and have spoken to our team members on proper procedures. I would also like to address the other negative experiences that you bring up in your review. Parking fees in downtown locations are normal and I assure you that our content team properly post those charges anywhere and everywhere you can book our hotel. These charges are not driven by profit but by the expense of operating a parking structure in a downtown location where parking is limited or non-existent. Our charges for this are inline with all other hotel operations in downtown. The door closers albeit noisy are a required safety feature for travelers and do cause noise from time to time when other guest allow them to slam as then enter and exit their guest room. I am also very sorry to hear that your room was not properly cleaned or deodorized. I will address this with our housekeeping staff. Given the opportunity during your stay prior to your rude awaking we would have most definitely addressed all of your other concerns. I encourage you to reach out to me should you have anything further and again I sincerely apologies for your negative experience here in our hotel. Sincerely, Shawn Jones General Manager

It'll do.

22/11/2016 Phil M,

We stayed here for a few nights at the end of a 4000 mile road trip. It's not located in a bad spot, it's a short walk over to the beach (I know, it's illegal to walk more than a Block in LA) and clos... more
